Château Pétrus--Vintage 1988
1 dozen bottles per lot
Château Pétrus--Vintage 1988 Pomerol, cru exceptionnel Lots 34-35 in original wooden cases, missing lids Parcel: lots 34-35 "The 1988 Pétrus is reassuringly outstanding, but it is not a prodigious Pétrus. The healthy dark ruby/purple color is followed by a young, backward wine with high tannin levels, medium body, and an inner-core of sweet, ripe fruit. It needs another 7-10 years of cellaring." Robert Parker Wine Advocate #103 (Feb 1996) 1 dozen bottles per lot
